Rosas/Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker

Bartók / Beethoven / Schönberg

During this programme of repertoire, Rosas brings together three early works by Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker. De Keersmaeker first ventured into contemporary classical music in 1986 with Bartók’s string quartet Quartet n°4. In a choreography of playful and combative accents, she distils varying rhythmic movements from Bartók’s complex and layered pulses and harmonies. In Die Grosse Fuge (1992) De Keersmaeker goes in search of a male vocabulary, and the dancers challenge gravity in an ingenious group work. The last part, Verklärte Nacht (1995), is a shamelessly romantic love story in which the contrasting feelings of a man and woman are analysed and interpreted in an expressive duet/trio written to Schönberg’s eponymous music composition. Each of the three works are choreographic answers to historical scores that reveal De Keersmaeker’s gift for both abstract and narrative composition.
